Nivea 2017 “Young Business Talent” Competition in Mexico

Nivea contest winners from our Girlstown

We think you will be very proud of our senior girls from our Girlstown in Chalco (Villa de los Niños) who took part in the Nivea 2017 “Young Business Talent” competition that aims to promote business talent and entrepreneurship amongst secondary school students in the region. The competition encourages senior school children to maximize their individual career opportunities and shape a better future for themselves.

The dedicated and talented girls from our school who put forward two teams were shortlisted into the top 75, with one of our teams beating all 300 other teams (including older teams competing from local colleges) to earn first place and the chance to compete in the international final in Germany in September.


A display of our students’ achievement

What a wonderful achievement! This success will help our girls to get even better jobs when they graduate and it is all thanks to your support – we couldn’t do our work without you!

We really hope you enjoy the photos of the winning team “Sunlight” holding the giant cheques that represent the amount of money their “company” made in the business simulation.

Congratulations to our students from Chalco!
